Extreme DIY: You'll never make it out of this escape room unless you have the right DIY skills

Aug. 2, 2018

You can escape anything with enough determination and the right tools.

My friends and co-workers are always trying to get me to participate in those trendy escape room games. They try to lure me in with promises of excitement, bonding, and puzzle solving. My response, however, is always the same: not without my tool belt. Why? Because you can escape anything with enough determination and the right tools. Well, the marketing team at Lowe's must have read my mind because they created a DIY escape room for professional contractors and some of YouTube's most famous makers. Instead of solving riddles and puzzles to find clues, the competitors must relay on their DIY skills to aid them on their quest and help them escape.
